Publisher's Summary

Written before she began her experiments in the writing of fiction, Virginia Woolf's second novel, Night and Day, is a story about a group of young people trying to discover what it means to fall in love. It asks all the big questions: What does it mean to fall in love? Does marriage grant happiness? What is happiness? Night and Day is a conventional novel; however, it maps out for us the world of Virginia Woolf in its wondrous prose: for her it was the beginning, leading on to a prolonged engagement with her search for the means to express the 'inner life'.

Slow to start but worth the wait.

What made the experience of listening to Night and Day the most enjoyable?

Juliet Stevenson is just lovely as always striking the perfect tone. I loved the setting in turn of the century London. I found the story difficult to engage with at first but then got into a juicy exploration of love and relationships that is really quite unique. The characters were real and full and sort of anti-romantic in a way which I found fascinating.

Fabulous

You must accept with this story that it is not a fast moving, highly dramatic page turner. What this fantastic writing offers is an amazing insight into the hearts and minds of its characters. The style of description and depth of understanding as to the tiny nuances of how people feel about one another and how they interact is outstanding. to fully complement this book the narrator was fantastic, as she always is. I highly recommend anything narrated by Julia Stevenson.
